We provide a full theoretical understanding of the recent observations of excitation of Raman two-peak states in solid-core photonic crystal fibers. Based on a "gravity-like" potential approach we derive simple equations for the "magic" peak power ratio and the temporal separation between pulses forming these two-peak states. We develop a model to calculate the magic input power of the input pulse around which the phenomenon can be observed. We also predict the existence of exotic multipeak states that strongly violate the perturbative pulse splitting law, and we study their stability and excitation conditions.
